I agree. Akili has to be on the list if Harrington is.

Here's two other thoughts. For my money, a worse move than drafting Rick Mirer is the Bears trading a first rounder for him.

And second, although he obviously didn't pan out for the Bengals, Ki-Jana Carter was derailed by injury. I generally don't like using the term "bust" on a player who was injured before we knew what he could be. And, I know MSNBC is using the word "worst," not "bust."

Exactly. Seattle cleaned up their Mirer mistake by extorting a first rounder from the Bears. Grand larceny.

That's what I call breaking even.

As for Ki-Jana, we'll never know how good (or not) he could have been.

I don't like how 2 of the top 3 are Colts :cry:

Just remember how close the Colts came to having all 3 of the top 3. (Pulls out Super Bowl DVD to remind himself all is good in the world.)

just in the 92 draft alone 3 of the top 6 were busts obvioulsy with coryatt and emtmann and another bengals bust David Klingler, which really shocks me that he didn't make this list. Given the coverage he got as the next best QB and became nothing in the nfl.

Now we head to Ricky Williams, should he be labled as a bust?

So what to make of Trent Dilfer in all of this?

I mean...he WAS the Buccaneers' QB for so long (ain't like we really had many other options)...he did make ONE Pro Bowl, and won a Super Bowl--albeit with another team. (is this guy still even in the league?)

Entman is unfair, injuries should have an asterisk, if he stayed healthy I dont think he would have been a bust.

To think there was a time that I was excited the Rams drafted Lawrence Phillips. <_<

Were you also excited when the Rams took Eric Crouch, too??? :D

Yes, actually.....
